A total of 13,600 tons of figs worth $47 million were exported from Iran during the last fiscal year (March 2019-20), according to the director general of the Agriculture Ministry’s Tropical and Subtropical Fruits Affairs Bureau.
“More than 104,000 tons of figs were produced on over 59,000 hectares of orchards across the country during the period,” Zahra Jalili-Moqaddam was also quoted as saying by Fars News Agency.
The official noted that the southwestern Fars Province is Iran’s fig production hub and accounts for the lion’s share of the country’s exports. 
Lorestan in the northwest and Kerman in the southeast are other main producers of the fruit.
